Podcast: Getting our hooks into hookless road

The Geeks have strong opinions on road tubeless and the movement toward hookless rims.

The time has come for the geeks to share their strong opinions on road tubeless and the movement toward hookless rims. In this Geek Warning episode, and off the back of a high-profile failure, James, Ronan, and Dave dive into the growing concerns related to the many caveats around hookless road rims.

Later in the episode, the conversation changes to fancier ways to hide cables through smaller headsets and the problems this may present. Then there’s a polarising PSA many probably won’t want to hear.

In many ways, this episode is just our geeks ranting about the issues of modern bikes, but hopefully, it proves useful!
